Happy World Cities day!
The 31st of October marks the United Nations' World Cities day, and this year's theme is "Innovative Governance, Open Cities".
Joan Clos, head of the UN-Habitat, stressed that we should not fear innovation, emphasising the need for governments and policy-makers to keep up with technology.
“If we open our minds to the possibilities and opportunities open government present, it will contribute significantly to generating a better world for people, planet and prosperity,” he said.
